Badminton Blogs to Watch This Year 2021

Published June 22, 2021

Finding authoritative and trustworthy badminton blogs isn’t as easy as you’d think.  It’s one of the main reasons I decided to begin blogging about badminton best practices and my journey as a top professional badminton player.

Blogs tend to be run by amateurs who end up lending bad or potentially harmful advice.  A lot of badminton blogs we come across have been inactive for some time.  They aren’t posting the most up to date best practices or the latest training drills.

Some others were difficult to navigate, not user friendly, or didn’t really capture our attention.  After scouring the internet and checking out dozens of badminton blogs – I’ve compiled a list of 13 favorites – based on authority, information, professionalism, or sheer entertainment value.

For me, this blog is definitely bookmarked for future reference.

She also provides excellent resources to help people try out different equipment as well as Badminton training camps in China. Though we’re miles apart, we share a love of the same incredible game of badminton.
